Very nice atmosphere. Dimly lit. Not too many choices on the menu. Plenty of room between tables not crowded even when completely booked

Food was good, price was right, atmosphere was good. They were busy which may have led to sub-par service.

Have been to Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse before and this was a Valentines treat for my wife. Service was excellent. The noise level from the music play was loud. Adjusted after about 45 mins. I had chicken prosciutto pasta and found the chicken to be on dry side. My wife had chicken perm that was excellent.

Steak and salmon were both very flavorful, but undercooked. Center of salmon was so raw it couldn't be cut with a fork. Service was very good and timely. Ambiance was marginal at best, but we had table closest to hotel lobby. Tables closer to entrance appeared to have better atmosphere.

Service was very slow. Fish was uninspiring, too much sauce on the snapper - more tomatoes than fish; out of prime rib - which 3 of us were going to order at 7p on a Saturday night. Chicken farm okay. Salad good. tables next to us out and kept taking photos all night with flash. Not excited about going back.

To be honest, our entire experience was mediocre. We arrived promptly at 11am with 8 people. Our table was ready and our waitress got drinks and appetizer orders right away. We then felt like everything from then on was sub par. It took a long time to order, and what seemed like an eternity to receive our food. It must have been at least 1215 by the time we got it. We specifically came for steak and not a single one was cooked correctly. Most were significantly overcooked, such as light pink centers when medium rare was requested. It wasn't extremely busy but our server didn't clear plates well or check in often. Some appetizer plates remained on the table for the entire meal, even though we stacked them up. She did ok on drink refills. Luckily, the flavor was still great, even though it was overcooked. Once finished, again we waited a long time for the check, I had my card ready when she finally delivered it.
I will go back to give it another shot, but am hesitant to order steak, which should be the specialty. I'm hoping that due to being a larger party right at opening time that this was just a one off...

Plate of pasta was quite small for $30+, appetizers were tiny and not that great. We went for restaurant week, so maybe it was just that menu? Pasta was good, just not a normal-sized serving.

We thought we'd try the place on restaurant week so we made reservations. We got there on time and were told that we'd have to sit in open seating in the bar where the bar tender would wait on us. At first we went in there and then my wife thought she would push the fact that we had reservations. 15 minutes later they moved us to a table in the restaurant. The waitress was not dynamic and just adequate,. It probably affected our perception of her that we had a fantastic experience the day before at Maggiano's in OP. Everthing was just OK.

We opted to sit at the bar to watch the Chiefs game, and while the bartender was very good, overall the meal was disappointing. Two of us had their steak offering, and we both found it to be tough. One had the Marilyn No. 5 chicken entree and she said it was great. I think the noise level in the restaurant itself would be very quiet, as it seemed there was virtually no one dining there. This could be attributed to the game, or the 6 plus inches of snow that had people not getting out to eat.

The very young hostess spent way too much time visiting with friends who were dining at a table near us. We shared an entree. They didn’t split it for us. Just brought us an extra plate. At this level of dining they should split it in the kitchen.

We came to celebrate the anniversary for several friends that all got married during the same week. The service was painfully slow. It appeared that our waitress was very new. We had to ask for water refills. She never bused the tables after we had the appetizers or main course. Then one of the bills was charged to the wrong credit card. We love the atmosphere and the food was good, service was clearly lacking.

This was our first & last time trying Johnny's. For this price point, the food & service should have been far better. Our server didn't know menu items, was not professional, never asked us to cut into our steaks to see if they were prepared correctly. Also, steaks were way too salty and potatoes were cool. We ordered appetizers (combo & crab cakes). We were sent scallops instead of crab cakes. My sister's steak was too salty to eat, then under cooked, then over cooked. She didn't get her steak until we were done with the meal. No comp offered except a free dessert which we didn't want/need.

The food was great as usual (we have eaten there several times in the past); flavorful, and hot. However, the service was lacking. I am guessing that this was in part to it being New Year's Eve.

The restaurant overall was very nice. The seating was good and the hostess was very friendly and quick to seat us. The server was also very nice and courteous and knew the menu well. The bread was very fresh and inviting with the olive oil and parmesan cheese. The food however was very bland and expensive for what you get. We both found that the starter salads were not very fresh. My wife had lots of brown lettuce in hers. I had the fillet medallion trio but the portions were very small and the steak, although cooked perfectly, wasn't that great. The upgraded side of lobster Mac and cheese was also very bland with little to no flavor. My wife had the seafood pasta pomodoro. It too, was also very bland and had little to no flavor. My wife didn't even finish it. The drinks were pretty decent, but lacking in the craft beer department. I had a boulevard tank 7 bottle and later a Buffalo Trace bourbon. My wife had the raspberry martini. Pretty standard and the taste was okay. All in all, I am not sure I will be back.
